Being Active in the World

The amazing thing about the early church is that its adherents understood the work they were doing in the world as much a part of “being church,” as when they were gathered together to pray and give thanks to God. They were always on the move, and their gatherings were always sending them out, into the world, to love and serve. This early church was on to something there too – not just because it’s the “right thing to do,” but because loving our neighbors, and being in our bodies, is good for us too.

Being Church in the World

Unlike other summers where we simply send you out to have new experiences and immerse yourselves in the places you are, we’re continuing to gather in small ways this summer, as a way to stay connected, and to accompany you through this extraordinary, “Ordinary Time” in your life. Here are some ways for you to stay connected, grow in your faith, and be the church in the world.

Why You Should Apply to be a Student Leader

As you envision your life in the next school year, the classes, jobs, and student groups, I strongly encourage you to apply to be a leader. Serving as a leader within LCM has been three years of personal growth, deep connection, and fulfillment that I wouldn’t change for anything.

Emily: A Reflection from the Border

I went into the Border Immersion trip very excited, but I was also not quite sure how I would feel coming out of it. I knew I was walking into a culture and a place in the world that I had no first-hand experience with.

A Warm Welcome to Dana!

On this Epiphany Day, where we celebrate the brilliant, darkness shattering light of Christ, we are beyond thrilled to announce that Dana Rademacher Hansen is joining the LCM-TC staff as our new Program Associate.

Faith, Science, and Seeking Understanding

I am a scientist. I am also a Christian. Many would say that this is not possible, from both sides of this coin.

The Necessity for Both

As the son of two Lutheran pastors, I literally grew up in churches. I remember antagonizing my brother one Sunday, resulting in him slapping me in the middle of my mom’s sermon. Yet, the ladies in our congregation still gave us pie that Sunday afternoon. In that moment, I learned that God’s abundant mercy and grace can be seen in people, too.
